DONETSK, October 25 (RIA Novosti) - Authorities in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk said in a statement that a calm set in Saturday evening in the besieged city after a day of sporadic shelling.

"The situation so far has not changed. It is calm in the districts, there have been no reports of hostilities. The transport system, community services and shops are working as usual," a statement posted on the webpage of the Donetsk City administration said.

Earlier in the day, Donetsk authorities reported that several city districts were targeted by the Ukrainian Army for artillery attacks. The shelling wounded four residents and killed a 100-year-old woman in her house. The centennial died of a wound after being hit by shell fragments, Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) Interior Ministry told RIA Novosti.

More than 3,700 people have been killed and over 9,000 injured in the fighting since the start of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko government's military crackdown on the country's eastern provinces, according to the United Nations.

On September 5, a trilateral Contact Group met in the Belarusian capital Minsk to mediate a ceasefire between militias and the Kiev government. A truce has since been in place, though local self-proclaimed governments in the east have accused Ukrainian troops of shelling indiscriminately residential areas in the region.
